GenreComedy / Drama
Based on the life and work of underground comic book writer Harvey Pekar, Paul Giamatti and Hope Davis play husband and wife in this outstanding tale. Meet Harvey Pekar, hospital file clerk, and grumpy observer of life's happenings. Since 1976, the pages of "American Splendor" have followed Harvey puzzling, fuming, and marveling over his day-to-day existence. Now, acclaimed filmmakers Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini bring Pekar's story to the screen. By using a narrative style and intermixing the real Pekar and his wife with the actors, the film takes on a unique look. Enjoy this rare treat and unique film.
